Visit Carnet for Free Login and Make Trip Plans for Romantic Luxury Getaway to Venice, Italy


Carnet has the best suggestions for romantic outings during your getaway to Venice!  One idea is to take a motorboat across the Venetian lagoon to the island of Torcello. Visit the ruins of the old Byzantine Cathedral and have a late lunch under the shady pergolas of the gardens of Locanda Cipriani. You might be seated at the table where Ernest Hemingway wrote “Across the River and into the Trees.”

Venice, Italy is full of romance and whimsy in every season, so it’s always a great time to plan a Venetian getaway!  The city of Venice is incredibly beautiful; a stroll through its neighborhoods is a lovely and charming experience.  In the summer months, visitors and locals alike enjoy long evening walks along the Giudecca.  In autumn, you can walk across piazza San Marco, but don’t forget to bring your rubber boots because of the high tide!  In winter, ten centuries of history are covered by a silent blanket of snow.  In the spring, make sure to experience the flowers and scents of the secret gardens in the city of the Doge.

Whether you’re traveling to Venice looking for romance or are a seasoned traveler, the Carnet travel guide to Venice has insider travel reviews for culture rich entertainment, art museums, galleries, fine dining, luxury hotels and fashion designer shopping addresses.  While in Venice, Carnet suggests hiring a Water Taxi to take you to the Giudecca Canal just before sunset and enjoy the colors and reflection of the waters. Watch the rays of the sunset play on the gold of the domes of San Marco from the Bell Tower of San Giorgio Maggiore, far from the maddening crowd.

I found these romantic Venetian travel suggestions from my favorite travel guide, Travel with Carnet!
